KQED will be posting all the episodes for Soundbreaking: Stories From The Cutting Edge Of Recorded Music as they become available online. Viewers will be able to watch them here until Nov. 28
The fifth episode of Soundbreaking is all about the beat. If the vocal track is the heart of a song, the rhythm track—the beat—is its body. It is the sonic element that taps into the most primal part of us and makes us want to move. Highlights include:
- Producers The Dream and Tricky Stewart talk about writing and recording Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”
- The Disco Era: Chic, Donna Summer, and the Bee Gees
- Post Disco: Blondie, Madonna and the sounds of the 80s
